    I left off rum as well. Oops. Was thinking more along the lines of grain-based spirits anyway.

    Cross post from the scotch thread. Anyone tried the Hillrock Solara yet? New York boutique distillery--I'm interested in it.

    I had some Willet a few weekends ago. Fantastic stuff.

    If it isn't too late. Buffalo Trace for warehouse/bottling aspects (and for being my favorite distillery). Wild Turkey had a better tasting policy though. Four Roses was decent but not a must IMO. Unfortunately, I didn't make it to Woodford on my trip... next time.

    Congrats on the bottle but I just can't get myself to spring for the 23 over the 20. I just don't register the marginal utility.

    Thanks - to be honest, I would have got whatever I could find. I happened to find the 23 and it was less expensive than some of my scotch, so I was comfortable paying for it.

    ^ This. 23 is only less expensive than scotch I am afraid to open for the possible disappointment. Above $200/bottle has got to be ridiculously good.

    You've never struck me as someone afraid to open a bottle of scotch, iregardless (c wht i did there?) of price. I'll make you a deal, I'll open up something rare, expensive, etc. for the holidays if you do. :)

    On topic, I'm not a fan of the 23, I think its kind of astringent tasting. To my taste, the 15 is the best tasting and best value in the line.

    I have a Laphroaig 25, a Talisker 30 and a Highland Park 30 which are more than the Pappy. Not by a lot it must be said.

    Had a dram of 17 year Vintage Bourbon last night. Delightful for a cold and blustery winter's evening.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Huh. I'm intrigued.

    And speaking of those seasonal releases, I just saw a bottle of barrel proof Parker's Heritage Collection 2013 edition on the shelf at my liquor store. Anyone know if it's worth the purchase?

    Interesting. Stagg is so darn woody that a little less age might be very nice. I like the wood, I admit, but only rarely.
